Hello ZEPETOScript

What is ZEPETOScript?

  • ZEPETOScript is a scripting language used for creating ZEPETO World.
  • It supports the TypeScript programming language.
  • ZEPETOScript is designed to define behaviors and functionalities within ZEPETO World, including:
    • Movement, physics, and interactions of objects.
    • Handling events, including user inputs.
  • Inherits from the ZepetoScriptBehaviour class, designed to be compatible with Unity's MonoBehaviour interface.
  • It can be attached to active GameObjects in the scene for execution.



  • When developing for ZEPETO World, C# scripts are not included in the package build.
  • Make sure to only implement using ZEPETOScript.

Hello World Tutorial

STEP 1 : Creating a ZEPETOScript

To create a new ZEPETOScript file,

click [Project] and select the [+] icon in the top left corner of the panel, or click Assets → Create → ZEPETO → TypeScript.


You can see that a new ZEPETOScript has been created, as shown below.


STEP 2 : Adding ZEPETOScript to a GameObject

ZEPETOScript can be attached to a GameObject as a Component, simply drag and drop the ZEPETOScript file onto the GameObject.




  • You can add components through the Add Component > Zepeto Script option.

STEP 3 : Adding test codes or emitting logs

The newly generated ZEPETOScript is shown below. You can edit the script using Unity’s development tools.

import { ZepetoScriptBehaviour } from 'ZEPETO.Script';

export default class NewTypescript extends ZepetoScriptBehaviour {

    Start() {    



Try adding log codes within the Start function to test whether the ZEPETOScript moves.

import { ZepetoScriptBehaviour } from 'ZEPETO.Script';

export default class HelloWorld extends ZepetoScriptBehaviour {

    Start() {
        console.log(`log : Hello World`);
        console.warn(`warn : Hello World`);
        console.error(`error : Hello World`);


Check out the test code output screen below.


Congratulations on completing the ZEPETOScript tutorial!

For those who have previously developed with C# in Unity or those new to ZEPETO World development, let's dive into the basics of ZEPETOScript.

Declaring Variables in ZEPETOScript

  • ZEPETOScript follows TypeScript syntax.
  • Therefore, it is essential to declare the type when declaring a variable.
  • Example of variable declaration:
import { ZepetoScriptBehaviour } from 'ZEPETO.Script';
export default class HelloZepetoScript extends ZepetoScriptBehaviour {
    // Global Variables
    private number: number = 10;
    private floatNumber: number = 10.5;
    private word: string = "ZEPETO!";
    private isTrue: boolean = true;
    private list : number[] = [1,2,3];
    private listGeneric : Array<number> = [4,5,6];
    Start() {
        console.log(`Hello, ${this.word}`);
        // Local Variables
        let a = 30;
        const b = 40;

Using Map Data Type

  • Instead of C#'s Dictionary data type, use TypeScript's Map data type to store and manage key-value pairs.
  • This data type is especially convenient for managing player data when implementing a multiplayer world.
  • Simple usage example of Map:
import { ZepetoScriptBehaviour } from 'ZEPETO.Script';
export default class HelloZepetoScript extends ZepetoScriptBehaviour {
    private myMap = new Map<string, string>();
    Start() {
        this.myMap.set("Player1", "Ze");
        this.myMap.set("Player2", "pe");
        this.myMap.set("Player3", "to");
        this.myMap.forEach((value, key) => {
            console.log(key, value);
        if(this.myMap.has("Player2")) {
            let value: string | undefined = this.myMap.get("Player2");

Utilizing JSON

When working with JSON-formatted data, you can use TypeScript's built-in functions.

  • Converting a JSON string to an object

    • Use the JSON.parse() method.
  • Converting an object to a JSON string

    • Use the JSON.stringify() method.
  • Example of utilizing JSON:

import { ZepetoScriptBehaviour } from 'ZEPETO.Script';
export default class HelloZepetoScript extends ZepetoScriptBehaviour {
    Start() {
        let jsonData = '{"id":"USER1234", "name":"zepeto", "age":15}';
        // Converting a JSON string to an object
        let userObject : User = JSON.parse(jsonData);
        userObject.age = 16;
        // Converting an object to a JSON string
        let newJsonData = JSON.stringify(userObject);
class User {
    constructor(public id: string, public name: string, public age: number) {}
